Have I held you in suspense long enough?! Here are some pictures of the new and improved green kitchen.
Things to notice:
- The white walls
- The chair cushions
Things to notice:
- The corner counter on the left side of the stove
If you want to see the close up picture on the counter I already posted, you can see it here.
The updates you can't 'see':
-The floor behind the fridge is all clean now
-The area around the floor boards and windows is now clean
-The trim is freshly painted white (again)
-The area about the counters, microwave and on top of the fridge are clean and spider web free
So here's the price breakdown on my little update:
-Paint and Supplies: $20
-New chair cushions: $28 for 4
-New utensil, knife and spice racks (can't remember, but approximate $20). We bought them nearly a year ago at IKEA. Since I already had them on hand, I did not include them in the price breakdown because it didn't affect our current budget to add them.
Total price: $48
I love it! I feel like it's made such a difference. The color does make the room feel a little darker, but that's okay. The color just makes everything look new though and it feels clean. I must say though, my favorite part is my extra counter space created by the IKEA organizers. Wish I would've hung those a year ago! ;)
A few changes I'm still hoping to make:
-New handles or doorknobs or these.
-Update: After talking to some friends, I might do black/dark knobs...thoughts?
Which do you like? Should we do some handles and some knobs? What would you do?
-A new plant in the corner (since it totally clashes now with the paint!)
-Clear off the refrigerator. I think a clean fridge makes a kitchen look cleaner, but it's so hard to keep that way! I'll be working on that one soon though.
What do you think?
